    Re: Strange Mint Error 11 Cent Coin can anyone help

    If that is supposed to represent two sides of the same coin it would have to be doctored from two coins as the planchets are of different metals. You'd have a silvery cent on one side or a coppery dime on one side if it was a mint error.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    not sure but wonder if it is a trick coin like for a magic trick. I had a trick coin that was one side a Kennedy half dollar and the other was a Mexican coin.

    Charlie....That does make sense and I'm not opposed to the magicians coin either maybe thats why it would have been doctored

    crazy thing also is that pennies are bigger than dimes. WOuld have thought that it would be more of a penny on the sides than a dime. Unless I am wrong.

    It's fake. Sorry! There's no way that could ever happen at the mint.

    Re: Strange Mint Error 11 Cent Coin can anyone help

    A "Magician's Coin" (penny and dime coin) is of two colors and has a value of a couple dollars.

    An error coin known as an "11-cent piece" has been struck twice at the Mint -- once with the dies for the penny and once with the dies for the dime -- showing details of both designs, usually on both sides of the coin.

    The tell-tale difference is the "11-cent piece" will be the same color on both sides -- either copper from the penny blank or silvery colored from the dime blank -- unlike the above mentioned Magician's Coin.

    Its NOT A SCAM, its a trick coin. How many posts is someone suppose to have, before they can ask a question?

    general questions are how new and old people learn. Had the person offered to sell it it might have been a scam but could also have been an attempt to raise money to buy a detector. siegfried schlagrule

    Re: Strange Mint Error 11 Cent Coin can anyone help

    ACTUALLY, it's possible that this could be a mule. If one side of the dime planchet wasn't coated with the silver metal (nickel), only the copper core would be visible. Look on the side of a modern dime and you'll see the copper core. The reason the rim of the cent side wouldn't be complete is because the cent is larger than the dime and was (?) struck on a smaller planchet.
